  1. Thanks for the info. I bought this boat used, so I was unaware of the factory installed option. The boat handles fine on plane.
  2. My 248 LS is an '03 with the Mercury 350 Mag and Bravo 3 Sterndrive I happened to meet another person over the summer who had a 248 LSC who had added tabs. They indicated it made a huge difference in performance, so I thought I would give them a shot. He had the same issues that I am having. I can understand some "wandering", but what I get is excessive. Granted, I am not a seasoned boater (less than 3 yrs), but I have been on other boats that do not seem to have this issue. Thanks for the post.
  3. Has anyone added Bennett trim tabs to a 248 LS? I want to add them for better slow-speed operation, as the boat wants to "wander" left and right at slow speed. Also want them to decrease time-to-plane. Sizing Guidelines would indicate that I should use the 24" x 9" tabs based on length. Problem is that the rear tie downs to the trailer are only about 6" from the transom, so there would be interference. I could fit 18" tabs inboard of the tie downs, but I would think that could reduce the performance of the tabs. Has anyone else run into a similar problem? Any help would be appreciated.
